    If that is supposed to represent two sides of the same coin it would have to be doctored from two coins as the planchets are of different metals. You'd have a silvery cent on one side or a coppery dime on one side if it was a mint error.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    not sure but wonder if it is a trick coin like for a magic trick. I had a trick coin that was one side a Kennedy half dollar and the other was a Mexican coin.

    Charlie....That does make sense and I'm not opposed to the magicians coin either maybe thats why it would have been doctored

    crazy thing also is that pennies are bigger than dimes. WOuld have thought that it would be more of a penny on the sides than a dime. Unless I am wrong.

    It's fake. Sorry! There's no way that could ever happen at the mint.

    Re: Strange Mint Error 11 Cent Coin can anyone help

    A "Magician's Coin" (penny and dime coin) is of two colors and has a value of a couple dollars.

    An error coin known as an "11-cent piece" has been struck twice at the Mint -- once with the dies for the penny and once with the dies for the dime -- showing details of both designs, usually on both sides of the coin.

    The tell-tale difference is the "11-cent piece" will be the same color on both sides -- either copper from the penny blank or silvery colored from the dime blank -- unlike the above mentioned Magician's Coin.

    general questions are how new and old people learn. Had the person offered to sell it it might have been a scam but could also have been an attempt to raise money to buy a detector. siegfried schlagrule

    ACTUALLY, it's possible that this could be a mule. If one side of the dime planchet wasn't coated with the silver metal (nickel), only the copper core would be visible. Look on the side of a modern dime and you'll see the copper core. The reason the rim of the cent side wouldn't be complete is because the cent is larger than the dime and was (?) struck on a smaller planchet.

    Its a fake. Because, if it was real, it would either be all silvery color, or all copper color. Because the planchet is not 2 different coins fused together. Its one planchet. and a dime was punched on one side, and a penny on the other. What someone did was file one side of each coin and glued it together.

    This coin is actually two coins (one fits inside the other). The mexi side is dual sided, removed with a special device, the other side is the back of the half dollar. A long explanation of the trick would follow but just take it to a magic shop and they'll prob buy it from you.

    It's still a "MAGIC TRICK COIN." We used to sell them in my buddies magic shop. It's not a mistake, it was made that way to fool the girls and the kids.

    I have a "mule" type coin (actually "coins") kind of like this... It's a Jefferson nickel (can't tell what year because you can only see the reverse side completely) with what looks like a blank copper penny that's been struck to one side of the nickel with such force that the two are inseparable. You can even see very tiny "flow lines" coming down from the rim of the penny blank (made when force is applied to a too-thick substrate) and it also has a slight "bottletop" appearance which seems to have stretched the penny blank out somewhat which makes the penny blank ALMOST as large in diameter as the nickel -- but not quite. I doubt it was a "joke coin" since the penny that is bonded to the nickel is a blank AND they are just slightly different in size so that you see it right away. Also, no year can be read on either coin since the penny is blank and it covers the obverse (front) of the nickel enough so that you can't read the date on the nickel either! I read somewhere where it's possible that a smaller coin could get stuck in the striking chamber before the production line at the mint was changed for a larger coin and then get hammered onto one of the larger coins when the run started...
